Ikea Raskog Cart

The first one I just can’t believe I finally own because I’ve been waiting to buy it forever. It’s the Ikea Raskog Cart that everyone talks about. I’m constantly seeing it showcased on Instagram in all its organizational glory. Ikea is about two hours from me and I think I’ve only been once or twice since moving to Alberta. The busyness of that store makes me a little crazy to say the least so we try and avoid it. However my middle son, who is going into Grade 12 this year, wanted a new desk for his room and found what he was looking for at Ikea so of course I figured while we were there I’d pick up my cart (by the way if you are in the US, you can get it on Amazon too!)

The cart was super easy to put together which was awesome.

I also made sure to grab the basket inserts that Rachel recently blogged about HERE.

Ikea Organizer 2

I am so in love with it. I haven’t started organizing my cart yet because I originally wanted it for my office but now can think of so many other ways to use it. So I’m giving it some time to percolate in my mind, I’ll be sure to keep you posted!

If you have this cart I’d love to hear how you are using it in your home.

Ruimio Makeup Mirror

It’s only been within the last five years that I’ve developed a love for makeup and all it can do for me. I’ve also discovered that a good makeup mirror makes all the difference in applying all that makeup!

Ruimio LED Makeup Mirror

This LED makeup mirror is absolutely fantastic and a total favorite of mine. The light is beautiful and bright, the mirror is 7X magnification, the size is nice and not too big, it suctions to any surface and has a 360 degree swivel so you can position it to your heart’s content. I even took it with me on my travels this summer and it was perfect. Highly recommend!

Mom Ultimate Calendar 2017

I love my Mom Ultimate Calendar for the fridge and have been using it for years and years. The 2017 Mom Ultimate Calendar is out now and I just picked up mine at Walmart and I know they go fast so if you see it around be sure to grab it.

You can also find it at places like Staples and Costco. It’s a nice big size and perfect for keeping your entire family organized so everyone is on the same page including the younger kids. When my 10 year old wakes up the first thing he always does is check the calendar 🙂

Lady Baker’s Tea

While we were away in PEI this summer I discovered a brand new tea that I fell head over heels in love with. It’s so smooth and delicious and yummy. It’s called Lady Baker’s Tea. I’m a bit of a tea snob and I couldn’t get enough of this loose leaf tea especially the Island Strawberry Tea. So good!

Lady Baker's Tea Trolley

It is available at select retailers across Canada but I don’t believe it’s in the US however you can order online which is what I plan to do. Oh and my Ingenuitea dispensing maker is another favorite I mentioned awhile ago. It’s the easiest way I’ve found to make loose leaf teas and clean it up afterwards.

So there you have it, four favorites for this lovely summer Friday. Now I’ve got four organizing links for you that I think you might enjoy.

    I have 2 of the IKEA carts! I had reconstructive foot surgery so no weight on the foot for 6 weeks. One cart holds hygiene supplies, the other holds sewing supplies! What a life saver when you have to sit to do everything. When I can walk again, they’ll be going upstairs in my sewing room! They’re so easy to push or pull!

      I hear ya! I live with chronic disease and having this to pull in beside my bed is going to be really helpful!

    I have the Ikea cart and love it. I just got my new Ikea catalog and it looks like its offered in a new color red or rust. I just love Ikea for organizing.

      Yes I love the rust color as well and almost got that one, but then I thought the more neutral color could be used in more rooms in case I want to switch things up 🙂 Although I could just buy more than one lol

    Do NOT buy the Raskog on Amazon. You can order it to be shipped from Ikea, pay the $30 delivery fee (US) and still get it cheaper than if you order from Amazon. I order from Amazon all the time, but was really not happy to find that I paid $12 more for the priviledge of ordering through my favorite site.

    We have 4 Raskog Carts in our home. I love them and could use more! We live in Montana and drive almost 5 hours to shop in the Calgary IKEA. So worth it!
